The BMW X6 is the largest of BMW’s SUV offering and its muscular posture never fails to grab the attention of road-users. The outsized dimensions don’t mean a compromise on sophistication however, as the model has this in abundance.
It’s seen through the gently curving roofline which starts at the sloping windscreen and ends at the tailgate for a distinctive coupé shape. This sleek silhouette only adds to the car’s sports appeal, with huge alloy wheels, front fog lights, dual exhaust pipes and a vast front air intake further evidence of this design approach.
Enter the cabin and it becomes clear the BMW X6 is among the leaders in its class. Every surface has been constructed from refined materials, and you have a choice of colours for the soft-touch leather upholstery, plus various dashboard and door inlays. This clear, careful attention to detail has also been applied to the interior, as comfort and practicality are high. Head and legroom is excellent for all, and the cavernous boot means there’s never any necessity to travel light unless it’s a matter of choice.
Reaching the SUV’s on-board technology is straightforward when in the front, so your focus can remain on the road. Here, you can control audio from the DAB digital radio or devices connected to the USB interface, while also checking directions from the satellite navigation system or answering a call hands-free via Bluetooth®. There’s a 10.2-inch integrated display to project information clearly,and it can also mirror apps straight from your smartphone.
Look under the bonnet for more advanced technology, including BMW’s famed ‘M’ innovation. The M Performance TwinPower turbo unit delivers a drive straight from the racetrack, sending 376bhp and 740Nm of torque to the road for a 0-60mph time of around 5.2 seconds. A non-M version of the diesel powertrain can be selected, and it impresses with CO2 emissions as low as 157g/km and combined consumption of 47.1mpg.
You can drive with confidence at the wheel of the BMW X6, as it is fitted with a host of safety features designed to prevent accidents from occurring. Notable systems include lane departure warning to stop you entering the path of other cars, forward collision warning to help avoid rear-end collisions,and pedestrian recognition to protect those outside the vehicle.
